Yōrō lies at the foot of the mountains and is a popular momiji (autumn colours) viewing spot of central Japan. It is also the region chosen by the architectural duo Arakawa-Ginz to be first turned into their vision of the future.
The local Yoro Railway (formerly Kintetsu Yoro line) running from Ogaki to Kuwana stops at Yōrō about halfway. The station building at Yoro dates from 1919.
Nexco also upkeeps an expressway service area and interchange on the northern fringe of town.
Walk, or if you are staying over, hop in the courtesy car that most local onsen-resorts provide.
Autumn colours and waterfalls in the nearby mountains. Numerous hiking courses exist as well as a chairlift.
There are a tonne of upmarket onsen resorts a ways north-west of the train station.
Yōrō Park is still open during mild rain so uhh... whilst it is undoubtedly more fun this way, be careful.
